do what you love / love what you do

Two blog posts in one day?!  It must be my day off...and I must be procrastinating as there sure is a lot of cleaning to do.  

Do what you Love.  Love what you do. 

Ahhhh...Simple words that are not so simple to actualize.  This card serves as encouragement for myself and others who struggle to do things that we actually love.  Perhaps we feel guilty or selfish about pursuing things that bring us happiness.  I, for one, feel fear.  May this simple phrase be a gentle reminder that when we do what we love, it is actually good for us and those around us.

My pink and grey color blocks are quite minimal, but I tend to go overboard with my cards, so I wanted to hold back here to let the simpleness of the sentiment anchor a simple image.

My color choices were inspired by the current Mama Elephant challenge, which uses this photo as inspiration.  There's still time to play along!

Thanks for stopping by!  

Stamps: Mama Elephant Cosmic Stars and XOXO
Inks: Copic markers; Tim Holtz Destress Inks (picked raspberry, spun sugar); Versamark (watermark)
